Introduction to Bird Identification, Ecology & Habitats - 12 Week Online & Field Course

Mixed Online/In-Person

Through a combination of weekly online lessons (completed on your own schedule) and optional field trips, you will learn the most effective tips for identifying over 50 species of birds by sight & sound. You will learn about the ecology and habitat requirements of these birds and what you can do to attract & benefit birds on your land. This course is appropriate for beginner birders and experienced birders who want to improve their birding skills and learn more about bird ecology and habitats.

Course instructors: Matt Tarr (UNH Cooperative Extension), Phil Brown (Harris Center for Conservation Education) and Steven Lamonde (Moosewood Ecological, LLC).

ALL FIELD TRIPS FOR THIS CLASS ARE FULL and most have a long waiting list. You can still register for this class but you probably will not be able to participate in field trips as part of this course.

  • Many students have participated in only the online lessons as part of this course and have found that experience very rewarding.
  • If you register for the class but are unable to register for trips, you will receive announcements if spots become available in trips during and after this course.
